We could not be more pleased with the experience, everything was perfect, the staff, rooms, food. The grounds are so tranquil you will not want leave. Everyone should experience the beauty and perfection of Monart

I stayed at Monart with my mam for one night recently. We both needed to get away from the rat race and just chill. Monart is the perfect destination for this! This is was my second stay and was even nicer than my first. The moment you walk into the hotel, you can feel the air of calm created by the idyllic surroundings including the woodlands and large pond.

My favourite thing about this hotel is that although it has 5 stars it is not a bit pretentious, I mean what other 5 star hotel allows you have your meals in robe and slippers!! (Well except dinner in the main restaurant where evening attire is required).

Our room was gorgeous with beautiful high ceilings and was very tastefully decorated.

The staff were fabulous in both the hotel and the spa where I had an amazing massage. First class hotel and I can't wait to go back when I find the time!

Thank you to everyone at Monart and keep up the great work

Had a lovely one night stay in Monart last weekend, only wish we could have stayed for longer. The 5 star customer service is wonderful - facilities amazing and spotlessly clean. We had lunch in the lounge bar and the menu choice is extensive. Our waiter a lovely man from France made us feel v welcome and told us that we should relax and enjoy getting away from the stresses of life......we ate in the dining room that night, you need to go v hungry and the food is excellent, pure fine dining.
The breakfast is excellent, los of choice. All and all its a wonderful experience.

Lovely cosy pillows and bed, bathroom was huge. Can't wait to plan my next trip to 2014 !

Just back from an amazing stay in Monart. The food was very tasty and I was very impressed with how they were able to cater so well for a coeliac diet. Each dish, I was told could be modified to suit a gluten free diet. The service was great and the staff were very warm and accommodating. The bedroom was lovely and the bed was extremely comfortable. During my stay I was lucky to get the opportunity to do a Tai Chi class with one of the visiting Shaolin Monks which was a great experience. In the spa, the view from the Sauna's and various rooms really made you feel you were out in nature and away from the daily grind. A loved every minute and was sorry to have to leave such a peaceful, relaxing and luxurious oasis.

Not first time there but one of most relaxing. Food a little down on previous occasions ( salads a bit tired) otherwise 5 star. Spa a little too crowded at this time of the year ( needs a bit more supervision - inevitably some idiots using phones in "chill" areas, and few attendants around) but facilities stood up well if one booked in time !

Main grippes - paid considerably extra to check in early ( i.e. At 12.00) but we were told it would be 12.30 ( it was 1.00) If its offered and you pay, you expect it! ( "people checking out NOT an excuse - surely thats expected?). Also why are "day visitors" allowed in these places ? Either its residents only or we will join a Health Club !!

Room Tip: Go off peak !!

2 night weekend stay. Service was second to none, all staff were very polite and friendly. food was excellent especially the breakfast, They go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your stay and are as stress free as possible, this was proved when we changed our booking for the restauarant and our 4 course meal was brought to our room each course at a time!
Spa is excellent, plenty to do here. its never too busy always feels like your in monart with only a handful of other people.
Love it, will definitely be back for a third time !
Also, beds are very comfortable and cleanliness is excellent, cant say enough good things about here.

Room Tip: Any room is good very spacious and clean, loads of room to chill.

We got a very good Sunday night deal: dinner, bed (twin) breakfast and use of the spa facilities for under €130 each but didn't pay extra for treatments - even the cheapest treatment was pricy. The food really made the trip for me - dinner was amazing as was breakfast. I have to say I was a little disappointed with the spa and couldn't help comparing it to Seafield spa in Gorey which I would rate more highly. There was no jacuzzi / hot bubbling water and the pool was disappointing. Overall the spa felt a bit like lots of slight variations on the sauna, though maybe I was missing something. The heated seats by the pool were cold on both occasions I sat on them. The bathroom in our room was beautiful and huge but the beds were a bit small (again I'm comparing to Seafield). The garden and balcony was stunning and the service and food FAR outdid Seafield.
